The whole show is tip top, and even Donna is on, but the jam->Dark Star->Dew is one for the ages. It's not a spacy, indulgent Dark Star, but a seemingly well-crafted musical Dark Star, with very smooth transitions, and a mellow feel throughout. At one point it evolves into a funky feel reminiscent of jazz-rock of the same period. (There are other instances of this in 1973-1974 as well.) And yes, another great Dew in a great Dew year.
From Not Fade Away until the end is spot-on, clean, tight Dead rock and roll.

Every '74 gets a five
I try to resist the urge to watch this "Star" on the DVD, because I find it far more rewarding to listen while driving down winding roads on a black night. It evokes exploring the multi-colored caverns with pixie dust lighting the way and all that other spooky good magical crap.

One of the strongest shows of '74, and the second set is one of most unique sets ever. As stated earlier, a complete meltdown, and the best Morning Dew of the year in an incredible Dew year (2/24,3/23,6/18,9/10). Yes it's the one in the the movie, and for my ears, perhaps the best all-time performance - totally tight, zero mistakes, huge power from Phil, incredible dynamics, perfect!

What about the FIRST SET
Besides the obvious standout of the Jam>Star>Dew, this show can stand alone on its first set merits. I may have just stumbled on my favorite Cumberland. Brown-Eyed is stellar, El Paso cooks. El Paso!? Straw is huge. Everything really kicks. Billy and Phil are really driving the boys. They're all ON it tonight. Cookin' with gas.

Dark Star for the Ages!
Yeah, it's hissy. Yeah, Jerry is down on the mix. But if you want the longest, uninterrupted meltdown of all time, get this one. From the Phil & Ned ashes becomes the JAM>DARKSTAR of all time. Jerry is dialed in to say the least. The jam into Dark Star is a masterpiece in itself. Oh yeah, then they go into Morning Dew!

Garcia's guitar is down in the mix
but it is also in the other offering. I'm going with this one after a few streams. It's a touch better quality to my ear. Especially vocally.
